Vilnius University Takes Action in the Wake of Covid-19 Outbreak Worldwide
We would like to inform you that while the threat of the COVID-19 infection remains, the University, in line with the decisions made by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania, has decided to extend the deadline for conducting studies and work remotely via on-line measures for 2 more weeks until the midnight of 13 April with a possibility to extend this deadline as well if needed.
Restrictions on accessing University’s infrastructure remain the same.
We remind you that we’ve also created a F.A.Q. section on our website: https://www.vu.lt/en/news/preventive-information-regarding-the-infections-caused-by-coronavirus
Students and employees should study remotely via on-line platforms - lectures and seminars will not take place at the University's buildings. VU employees should also work remotely. If there is no possibility to work at home, follow all recommended hygiene requirements.
Work at laboratories should happen only in the case of a huge material or scientific damage if cancelled. In addition, all planned work trips to foreign countries will be cancelled. Please be cautious and do not plan trips to China, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, South Korea, Iran, Singapore, Japan and other possible areas of the outbreak.
Trips of extreme importance will only be allowed with the permission of the head of faculty/department. If you have recently come back from such a trip, a quarantine of 14 days is mandatory.
Students coming back from ERASMUS+ should quarantine themselves safely at places without shared spaces; therefore, dormitories are unsuitable to quarantine yourselves.
The library's working hours will also change. Libraries will be open on weekdays from 9 am to 6 pm, both in the Central Library, the Scholarly Communication and Information Centre (SCIC) and the faculties. Libraries will not work on weekends. Students will not be allowed to work in the library and students will not have access to the reading rooms. Books will be issued, but only after the list of required books has been provided. Working rooms' reservations will be cancelled.
All events during this period should be postponed, held on-line or, if that is not possible, cancelled.
If you have any questions, University’s Department of Communications and Marketing coordinates communication. Please do not hesitate to contact via email
